THIS IS AN EXCELLENT EDUCATION FACILITY WITH A SUPERIOR STAFF! TOP NOTCH STAFF! WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE!


Posted September 8, 2011

School rating is very low, the teachers the principal are not covering the material they should be. All kids are below average. And when parents try to get involved as for more homework so at least we can do more at home they get angry

It is a small setting. Teachers and staff do the best job of reaching every student in the building. You can just tell the kids love to be there!


Posted October 1, 2009

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Illinois used the Illinois Standards Achievement Test (ISAT) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and in grades 4 and 7 in science. The ISAT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Illinois. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

In 2013 the Illinois State Board of Education raised the performance expectations for the ISAT in reading and math. These expectations have been adjusted to better align with the Common Core State Standards, a multi-state initiative that established year-by-year guidelines outlining the grade-specific skills and content students need to stay on the path to college and career readiness. The higher expectations of the new standards will result in a downward shift of where students rank in meeting or exceeding standards.
